What To Expect During A Houston Roof Replacement Project

If you’ve never had a roof replaced before, you might not be sure what to expect. Fortunately, at Houston Roofing, this is the kind of thing we do every day. We can give you a sense of what to expect and provide expertise and professionalism through the entirety of your project. Here’s what you can expect from your roof replacement in the Houston area.

What Do You Need Beforehand?

Before the roof replacement project begins, you’ll need a roof inspection in order to get a sense of the amount of roofing materials needed and any issues with the subsurface levels of the roof such as the roof decking. The roofing contractor will also need to make sure they have the proper permits to conduct the roof replacement and that there’s no issue with the HOA or neighborhood association. From there, you might make arrangements to travel while the project is going on or to stay at a hotel. Then it’s just a matter of time before the roofing project.

How Long Does the Roof Replacement Project Take?

This varies depending on the roof replacement team, the material, and the size of your roof. Typically, it takes between 1-7 days for the roof replacement itself and 1 day for the disposal of old roofing material. The roofers will dispose of the old roofing material as well as clean up and clear away any debris. If you choose to stay at a hotel while your roof is being replaced, you should come back to a clean yard if your roofers are true professionals. 

What Do You Need To Do?

First, decide whether or not you’re going to stay in the house and make reservations if not. Make plans for any pets, as well. Will they be boarded? Will they be staying with you? If they’re staying at home, make sure they’re safely sequestered and won’t be in the way of the roof replacement team. Cut your grass short and make sure there’s a clear pathway for the roof replacement team. If you have any valuables in your attic, cover them up so that construction dust doesn’t filter through.
